How?If the firearm is recovered outside of the container. I posted a story about this exact thing happening a few weeks ago and the dude involved still got charged and successfully convicted of improper storage.
TL;DR - guy had a LTC and gun was lawfully possessed and registered. Guy got his car stolen while he went into the gas station with the car running. Guy claimed the gun was in a built-in locked container inside the vehicle. Reported the car stolen to the cops and told them about the gun. Cops found the gun outside the locked container. However, they have no idea what the car thief did after the car was stolen. They even acknowledged it on the stand that they can’t prove the car thief didn’t touch the firearm or container. No fingerprint testing was done. Thief did technically have access to the container though because the key for the container was the same one for the ignition, but at the time of the incident the gun was properly secured and cops can’t disprove that. Unfortunately they still lost that case.
Hopefully the jeep owner properly advertised with all kinds of gun stickers on the rear window of the jeepOn the Chelmsford police FB page they said last night in Chelmsford a Bronco was stolen out of someone's driveway. The Bronco was recovered in Dracut but the car had two firearms stored in a back pack inside. One of the firearms is now missing. The owner was honest with the police and reported everything. Is he screwed?
Got the story from the TikTok account of a criminal defense lawyer I actually previously used for a LTC denial (Joe Simons). Don’t know any more details about the case besides what I’ve already listed. It was a jury trial, for what it’s worth.How?
That doesnt pass the smell test.
Unfortunately I don’t have any more details about the case besides what I’ve already articulated. Here is the source, if the link works:Did the guy think that being innocent was sufficient and turn down a CWOF plea that would not have rendered him a lifetime federal PP?
